University of California, Merced
School of Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts
Assistant Professor of Musicology
The University of California, Merced invites applications from distinguished scholars and teachers for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level in Music outside the Western art music tradition. Area of specialization is open, but priority will be given to music scholars who are interested in crossing boundaries of discipline, genre, geography, and history to work in a new interdisciplinary program in close collaboration with colleagues in visual arts. As a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI), we especially encourage applications from scholars who focus on Latin America, particularly Mexico. The successful candidate will teach in Global Arts Studies, an innovative program which is dedicated to providing a diverse student body of undergraduates with the tools to read artistic objects across a range of media, cultural contexts, and as texts bearing information about the societies that produced them. The candidate will also teach and advise students in the Interdisciplinary Humanities graduate program.
